We chose the vegan dishes are were very pleasantly surprised. Very interesting, bold flavours. Good portions. Great service. Highly recommended.

Delicious food, beautiful presentation.....highly recommend the Sovereign lamb dish and the scallops. Love being able to take in our old wines on a Tuesday night with a fair corkage fee :)

There was a lot of glare coming through the window during our lunch, and the waitress would not let us move to any empty tables elsewhere. I felt that this was not good enough for a restaurant in this price range. Food was good, particularly the beef brisket.

Excellent, again. Service, food and drinks were all spot on! Do yourself a favour and get there.

All four courses we shared were delicious....beautifully presented and full of flavour......highly recommend! Tuesday night is BYO wine night, good opportunity to match some of your special favourites from home with a fine dining experience with a fair corkage fee :)

It was a little bit busy due to State of Origin, the staff were excellent and the food was worth the wait!

Food was tasty, but the service slow and rude. Long wait between the dishes. When we asked about the timing, when will the order be served, we met with a very rude response. There were very few customers, so not like anyone was overworked there.. Certainly will not go back or recommend to anyone.

Very disappointing service. Quite terse/abrupt server who wasn't welcoming nor helpful. Food good. KFD (Kentucky Fried Duck) way overpriced - $64 for 4 portions - love a duck!!! Despite dining at Public on a few occasions, I won't return again too soon.

About Public

Wonderful Contradictions Public is a place of wonderful contradiction. There’s a quaint antique typewriter and collection of antique sewing machines mixed in with a sleek, contemporary interior of concrete floors and soaring glass walls. There’s KFD (Kentucky Fried Duck) as well as delicate dishes such as wagyu tataki that’s as pretty as it is complex. But these contradictions are part of Public’s charm. And lovers of this sexy, New York loft-style venue will know the drinking is just as good as the food. One thing’s for sure, Public’s dinner and drinks menu remains one of the most engaging in Brisbane. Check it out! Best dish: Wagyu Tataki with wombok and pickled cucumber
